“Homely little place”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

About 5-7 minutes away from the jetty. Mini mart located a few doors away. The place n room is clean, though small as we were left with the small room for selection. The hotel have motorbike and bicycle for rental. You could even book snorkelling package with them. The beach is also less than 10 mins away (travelling by bike). There are also coffee shop nearby for morning breakfast.

Surrounded by local bars, shops, jetty and temples - it's in the Pangkor Town centre actually. Room and bathroom very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. You can rent a bike or motorcycle at the hotel.
Quit far away from the beaches, at least 2km - but there are cheap taxis. Our room didn't have a window, though there was no such information here on booking.com. Tv - only Malaysian and India channles.

Room Tip: Check - in advance - if your room has a window, if it's important for you of course.

Firstly, you can walk here from the Ferry pier, don't let the taxi drivers convince you that you need a taxi!
Good clean hotel, aircon, tv, ensuite and confortable beds. Location is poor, there is only one restaurant next door (good food though). To be fair though, you're likely going to be hiring a moped/bike/car during your stay on the island anyway, so this is not a problem. Mopeds are available for hire at around $13 per day. If not taxis are still cheap.
Overall good hotel with pleasant staff - i would stay here again.

This hotel is less than 10 minutes walk from the Pangkor pier.It is just 3 years old.The owner is a local guy.This hotel offers free Wifi throughout the hotel.We booked a room for 3 persons and there were 2 beds in the room. Each bed was neither single nor queen. We had to join those two beds in order to have comfortable space. The air con was working fine. Water pressure was low. No toiletries provided except toilet papers. The television was small and reception was bad. They should have added cable tv because during night time Pangkor is dead. I would not say this hotel is strategic because Pangkor is so small that it does not make much difference where you stay. There was no restaurant at this hotel.

Room Tip: Higher floor is quieter since the hotel is located beside the main road.
